The Car Connection's Take

8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 MINI Cooper models are small-car standouts in style and driving fun, and with several body styles and three different levels of performance you can pick your level of potency and practicality. The 2013 Volvo C30 still has a stunning design, inside and out, but its performance and practicality can easily be beat.
